GMC oxen pair headed to slaughterhouse

Oct 10, 2012 Full story: WCAX-TV Burlington 17

The pair -- Bill and Lou-- have worked the fields there for more than a decade. But due to injury, the college says the pair will be retired -- and as is standard practice at the farm -- processed into beef products that will be served in the college dining hall.

To do this to Animals that are so loved by the students at this school must mean that their are persons who should not be in charge of students as they must be a psychopaths. If I had children going to this collage I would take them out as they are not fit to teach. Itís only a small step from hurting animals to people for psychopaths like this. They are a disgrace to the profession of teaching

Seems like a good time for a golden oldie hit:

SHAFT THE BLOATED BLOGGER

(Sung to the tune of Puff The Magic Dragon)
(With lyric credit to the REAl real Vermonter)

Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Lives in a tree
And wallows in his emptiness
In a land called 'Look at me!'

The intelligent forum bloggers
Would cringe when Shaft logged on
And bravely weathered the insanity
Til Shaft they knew was gone

The wise bloggers ignored Shaft
Hoping she would just go away
But Blogosaurus never took the hint, instead
Kept blogging with nothing to say

The smart opinion posters
Would wince when 'ere the saw Shaft's name
No one dared entertain the rants
'Cause its not wise to acknowledge the inane

Shaft would waste the hours
Making post after stupid post
Never realizing
Everyone knew she was just a joke

Then one day it happened
The Topix forum was no more
And Shaft that Blogosaurus
Ceased her mind numbing bore

Shaft's keyboard silenced forever
No forum to post her crap
So Shaft the Bloated blogger
Did what she does best...nap

Shaft's nonsensical posts went unanswered
Her green scales fell like rain
Shaft no longer could go out and play
Along the cyber lane

Shaft stuffed her face in sorrow
Pork rinds fell like rain
Shaft no longer had the place
Where she was a gigantic pain

Without her anonymity,
Shaft could not be brave
So Blogoppatumus that self-righteous hypocrite
Limped back to her dingy cave

Oh, Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Lives in a tree
And wallows in his emptiness
In a land called 'Look at me!'

Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Was outed on these posts
With its identity finally revealed
Shaft headed for the coast

Once its true identity was given
Shaft made a final hasty post
Then tucked its tail between its legs
And faded like a ghost

We learned its name is Marky
A pathetic loser of a man
Whose life went from the fire
Into the frying pan

Shaft came back and tried to deny it
Saying Marky was not him and such
But smart bloggers knew much better
'Cause Shaft (Santelli) doth protest too much

Shaft denies and says he's not Marky
The lousy ex-cop who is oh so fat
But the proof is in the bloggings
And as you say 'Good luck with that!'

As if it's not bad enough to be a nation that loves its guns more than its children, we're apparently also a nation that eats its pets.
